Xinhua,November 29, 2017 Adjust font size:

BEIJING, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese mainland spokesperson said Wednesday that the recent exercises of military planes from the People's Liberation Army (PLA) were planned regular training.

Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks at a press conference when responding to reports in Taiwan that PLA planes had "circled Taiwan four times within a week."

Ma said the biggest guarantee to the stability of Taiwan Strait was "to oppose 'Taiwan independence,' adhere to the 1992 Consensus and take a path of peaceful development for cross-Strait relations." Enditem
